Why is a breast cancer organization going to a climate march?
Hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) contaminates our climate – it also contaminates our health through the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. The chemicals used in fracking also expose people to endocrine disruptors and carcinogenic chemicals that have proven links to breast cancer. Standing up for climate change means we must ban fracking. It’s that simple: a healthy environment is a step towards healthier communities.
Governor Jerry Brown can end this toxic practice and ban fracking in California. That’s why we’re joining our partners to bring 10,000 people together to demand Governor Brown show real leadership around climate change. It’s time to take action now because our lives and the health of future generations depend on it.
Please join BCAction and activists from across the state at the March for Real Climate Leadership in Oakland, CA to demand Governor Jerry Brown put our health first and ban fracking.
WHAT: The March for Real Climate Leadership: Our Water, Our Health, Our California invites communities and organizations across the movement to say loud and clear – “our water, our health and our California come first.”
WHEN: 11:30 a.m., February 7th, 2015
WHERE: Frank Ogawa / Oscar Grant Plaza, 14th & Broadway, Oakland, CA
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you’ll be joining us!
The movement to ban fracking in California is growing — last March, 4,000 people rallied outside of Governor Brown’s office in Sacramento, and last November San Benito and Mendocino counties voted to ban fracking entirely. Join Breast Cancer Action and our partners as we show Governor Jerry Brown that the people of California are ready for a ban on fracking now!
We’re counting on you being there!
